Another day of waiting at Asheville Cardiology. After almost a year since my last review I was hoping for a better experience. Last time around the awful service was blamed on a new phone system, new software and consultants everywhere. Well will a year passed its the same old terrible service. Five phone calls. Two nurse conversations and multiple promises to have the doctor or the doctors nurse to return my call but , IT JUST NEVER HAPPENS. Thanks rebecca in nursing 12/26 for absolutely noth.

Dr. Lim has been my cardiologist since 2004. Dr. Lim is plain spoken, candid, and very adept at his profession. We have built an excellent doctor-patient rapport over the years. He's good, and I would highly recommend Dr. Lim.

He's an OK diagnostician, in my opinion, however understanding my concerns and knowing my health history before and after seeing him is sorely lacking. After 2 years I am fed-up and going to look of another doctor.
